The impact pushed the vehicle, a newer-model Lexus sedan, into an overhang at the clinic, located at 99 Airport Blvd. The overhang then crashed down on top of the Lexus.

No injuries have been reported.

The crash, which occurred at 2:30 p.m., closed eastbound Airport Boulevard. 

Watsonville Police Sgt. Donny Thul said the male driver of the Ford lost control for unknown reasons. Drugs and alcohol are not suspected in the crash.
